Overview

As the beautiful daughter of a Roman senator, Junia enjoyed the best that life had to offer in first century Rome. She was grateful and anxious to please her family, a dutiful and obedient young woman of privilege.

It shows how the attractions of the new religion were accompanied by social struggle, family division, and the risk of a disgraceful death to those courageous enough to embrace it.

    Short..but interesting!

    This is more like a short story! The story line was good and convicting! I have read quite a few christian martyr stories and I think what surprised me were the mention of prayers to Mary and penance. I feel the Bible teaches that prayers are to be directed to God alone. In the OT prayers were offered by a priest but when the veil was torn at crucifixtion...we were now given access to Christ. Mary's virgin birth was through no power of her own but was a miracle of God. He alone is due the glory and worship for that. Also..when Christ suffered for our sins at Calvary..no more suffering is required from us or we are saying that Calvary was not enough. I did appreciate the bravery and honesty of Junia though which was given to her from the Lord! He is ever faithful!!!

    Amazing!!!!!!!

    This story was very inspiring enjoyed it. I would like to say to the person who wrote the reveiw below mine that though today "christians" are considered all people of all religions beleiving in Christ, the early christians were what are now known as Catholics. This is why this book tells of Junia's devotion to Mary, the motherof Jesus and of self sacrifice, because the Catholic church has always beleivedin these things. Though later other religions were formed which are also considered christian, in the time that this story took place, christianity and cotholithism were considered one and the same thing.
